Using Disney touring plans on an iPhone

 

Lots of savvy Disney travelers these days go in with a strategy. Yes, it takes some of the spontaneity out of the experience, but if being spontaneous means standing in line for hours and hours, I’ll go with a little planning. But carrying a stack of touring plans around with you all day can be a little inconvenient.

Again, the iPhone can solve your problem. If you are a subscriber to the Unofficial Guide’s touring plans, or are using one of their free sample plans, here’s how you can bring it with you:

1. Go to the website and customize a plan for your date of travel.

2. Save it as a .jpg to your computer.

3. Put the plan, now a picture file, in whatever folder you use to sync pictures with your iPhone/iPod touch (I have a folder for that called, creatively, Mobile Pictures).

4. Now you can view your touring plan on your iPhone in the Pictures app. You can rotate it and zoom in and out just as you would with any picture.

5. No more paper necessary!
